  • 2 pounds red new potatoes, halved if small, quartered if large
  • 1 tablespoon olive oil
  • 1 tablespoon fresh thyme leaves
  • Coarse salt and ground pepper


  1. Set a steamer basket in a large pot. Fill with enough water to come just below basket; bring to a boil. Place potatoes in basket; reduce heat to a simmer. Cover, and cook until tender, 15 to 20 minutes.

  2. Transfer potatoes to a medium bowl. Add oil and thyme; season with salt and pepper, and toss.
